Materials

 

We use the best raw materials, grown or produced in ways that do not harm people, animals or the environment. Good quality materials are durable and keep their shape, wash after wash. They are made from premium quality yarns with long fibers in order to keep the surface looking good without fuzz accumulating on it. The longer you can use your favorite clothes the more ecological they get.

 

100% of the cotton we use is GOTS certified organic cotton grown responsibly in India. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria. GOTS guarantees that cotton is organically grown without the use of any harmful chemicals like pesticides, fertilizers and insecticides. 

 

100% of all materials we use are Oeko-Tex 100 certified that guarantees that the materials are safe for the environment and for your skin. Oeko-Tex is a globally standardized, independent testing and certification system for harmful substances and chemicals for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products of all processing stages and accessory materials used.

 

None of our products use any animal test or ingredients, formulations, or finished products nor do they contain any animal delivered components. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the world's largest animal rights organization. 

 

Used Fibers:

  • 97% GOTS certified organic cotton from India

  • 3%‌ recycled polyester from China


 

Manufacturing

 

We want to be part of a change where we can provide better working conditions there where it’s most needed. We found a clothing partner who is committed to staying in Bangladesh, making a lasting and positive impact on working conditions of the fashion industry in Bangladesh by maintaining and developing relationships in Dhaka.

 

To ensure the safety of workers, our supplier partner works closely with the Fair Wear Foundation. Fair Wear Foundation is an independent organization that works with apparel brands, garment workers and textile industry influencers to improve labor conditions in garment factories. There are a number of mechanisms in place to ensure decent working conditions, such as an internal Code of Conduct, monthly reports and daily visits to partner factories. 

 

Code of Conduct consist of, for example, the following subjects: no child labour, no forced labour, wages have to be at least minimum wage, no more than 60h work per week (after that 24h sleep must be conducted), no discrimination, no harassment or abuse, health care must be provided to all workers, environment laws have to be followed, and human rights laws and policies have to be followed.
